Chelsea facing huge losses after ignoring Gary Neville advice on striker deal


Chelsea could have avoided significant financial losses had they taken Gary Neville’s advice on Romelu Lukaku. The Sky Sports pundit did not think the Belgian striker could adapt to the high-pressing nature of the modern English game. 

Lukaku described his return to Italy as something of a homecoming with the Belgian feeling at ease in Milan. 

“It’s like coming home,” the striker explained. “I think my family and I had a really good time in Milan thanks to the people, the fans and my team-mates. From the first day when I arrived here everyone helped me a lot, I’m really happy.

“I didn’t even leave my home when I went to England, which shows how happy I am to be back here. Now I just want to see the guys on the pitch.”

Lukaku could yet return to Stamford Bridge as there was no obligation to buy inserted into the loan move. Chelsea would have to sanction a cheap deal for the player should they wish to part with him permanently, at huge financial cost to the club, something that could have been avoided had they took Neville’s advice in the first place.
